Time Is Running Out

In this dramatic monologue for a woman, MARIA complains to her husband about his indecisiveness on his career goals.

MARIA:  You drive me nuts!! One day you say you want to be a carpenter, the next a plumber, now you want to be a veterinarian !

Gerren, you have to make a choice!

Life isn’t a dress rehearsal, time is flying by and here we are in the same dingy apartment, with hardly any money to feed our child and now you want to be a Vet!

What is wrong with you? I support your dreams, I want you to succeed more than anything in the world but why can’t you just stick to one thing and succeed at it?

Time is passing us Gerren, we either get it right this time or re-think our future.
